HEPATIC FATTY CIRRHOSIS IN TEXAS WHITE-TAILED DEER Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Hepatic fatty cirrhosis (HFC) has been known to occur in certain domestic livestock species since 1931. Early studies in Texas indicated that HFC was restricted to five western counties. Recently HFC was identified in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus texanus) in South Texas for the first time. Of the deer examined, 25% were affected. The etiology of HFC was not determined.
